    There's nobody here I wouldn't invite to my house to share a meal with. Some of you folks piss me off now and then, but not any worse than my own family.

    Agreed.  In fact, I've not invited some friends here due to their inevitable "But..but...but...it's about MEEEEEEEE!!!!!" approach to discussing most things.

    I am certain that many of you would get very tired of people arguing a topic away from assisting / alerting / informing / sharing with others and (through force of personality) change it to their typical "I just don't see it that way, so you're wrong!"

    In all honesty, Kaso, it's also because we haven't disagreed about *everything*, and seeing the other perspective helps me formulate my position better.

    Same here, though with a young child to consider, there's a thorough social vetting first... Met Ken Brock at BLADE, wouldn't hesitate to offer letting him stay at the house next year, for instance...

    Depends on what vibe I get from you in person.   :shrug

    Either way, I'll make sure you eat well - there're some great restaurants in the area, and I'd be happy to meet you at any one of them.

    No, I meant concerning some of my more radical political and social positions.  I suppose so long as we kept away from those topics, you and I might well get along.

    I completely understand, I don't even like strangers around my friends kids. I've read too many criminology cases of how sick people can be.
